From the Critics:

  • "Opaque inky-purple. Black cherry, plum, cocoa and aromatic herbs on the knockout nose. Savory, suave and dense, offering a terrific combination of juiciness and depth to its minty black fruit and tobacco flavors. Bright acids and firm, sweet tannins give this lush, seamless blend a solid underlying structure. The smooth, long finish features palate-saturating flavor. Very well done: even though this is in the typically creamy, riper style of the warm Tuscan Coast, Avvoltore almost always manages enough lift and gracefulness to avoid coming off as yet another high-pH, creamy monster. Aged 12 months in new and once-used small French oak barrels." (09/12) - 94 Pts Ian Dagata - International Wine Cellar
  • "The 2009 Avvoltore is one of the most refined, elegant wines I have ever tasted from Morisfarms. Sweet, silky tannins frame a core of super-expressive black fruit. The wine flows across the palate gracefully yet there is plenty of underlying structure. This is a fabulous, sleek Avvoltore that is sure to find many fans. Stylistically the 2009 is quite ripe and radiant, but it doesn't have the heft or weight of a truly opulent year. The wine can be enjoyed now or cellared for at least a handful of years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024." (08/11) - 93+ Pts Antonio Galloni - Vinous
  • "Aromas of chili powder and dried fruits follow through to a full body, with round and chewy tannins and a long finish. Needs another two or three years to come together." (09/12) - 92 Pts James Suckling
